It’s been a wild year for anything and everything involving the hit movie, Black Panther. The likes of Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Ryan Coogler, Danai Gurira and many more have cemented their legacies within Black pop culture through the film. Not to mention, the film is sure to be in the hunt for more than a few awards as we enter award show season. Beyond all of that, the film has made a cultural impact that is beyond awards and Hollywood. With all of that being said, Black Panther is clearly one of the biggest movies of the decade and the numbers reflect that.
After an opening weekend that brought in north of $200 million, the Marvel film never looked back. Bringing in over a billion dollars worldwide, the film currently ranks as one of the five best Marvel films of all time. Entering into its six months in theaters, Black Panther is still breaking down barriers and rewriting record books. This weekend, Black Panther entered into a rare class of movies. Ryan Coogler’s Marvel debut has joined the likes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avatar as the third movie to ever cross the $700 million mark domestically. This milestone cements Black Panther‘s place as the most successful Marvel film ever released in the United States. While it appears that the Avengers: Infinity War may possibly enter into this realm, Black Panther will go down in the record books regardless.
